Go tell Red Hat and Novell that they are blatantly violating the GPL,
silly Hyman.

Yeah, I know that you're "insufficiently motivated"... right?

"The Software is a collective work of Novell"

Note that Red Hat's and Novell's collective works (compilations aka
"mere aggregations" in GNU-speak) contain tons of non-GPL components
even "incompatible" with the GPL.
